When baby Angel Babcock took her last breath, her grandmother lost her fifth family member to a tornado that has ravaged Indiana, ABC News reports.

At 15 months old, Angel had miraculously managed to hang on after being found, alive, in a field Friday. Her parents and two siblings had already perished.

But Angel's condition quickly deteriorated, according to the Associated Press and her grandmother, Kathy Babcock, and other family members, decided to take her off life support Sunday.

"She put her arms straight up, she was daddy's little girl. So daddy picked her up and took her,” Babcock told ABC News.

As Babcock begins mourning the loss of her son, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren, she's also facing the exorbitant costs of burying a family that didn't have any insurance, according to WLFI.

To help pay for the funerals, a family member set up the Babcock Family Fund through a Bank of America location in Michigan. Donors can contribute at any bank location in the country, and just need to mention the name of the fund and the state in which it was established, a bank representative told The Huffington Post.

"They need to have a proper burial," family friend Sherry Young told ABC. "That's my dream, that's my prayer. I've been praying and praying that this can happen for them."
